3-Read Friday #21
PISA, ChatGPT, and mobile phones
This newsletter is made possible because of Eedi. Check out our brand-new set of diagnostic quizzes, videos, and practice questions for every single maths topic, ready to use in the classroom, and all for free, here.
Here are three blog posts that I found interesting this week.
With the 2022 PISA results released this week, there is information aplenty about which countries have risen and fallen, in which subjects, along with speculation as to why. It’s easy to get overwhelmed. Fortunately, Alex has written a lovely summary, picking out 9 key points to reflect upon.
Dan shares predictions people were making about the role technology would play in transforming education in the 1960s, and compares these with the predictions people are currently making about the role of generative AI. Lots of food for thought.
There has been a lot of talk about banning mobile phones in schools recently, with advocates speculating that our future selves will look back upon this time and wonder how these attention-sapping devices were ever allowed in our schools. Here, the Inner Drive team draw parallels between the smoking ban to help schools enforce a policy that is bound to be met with resistance.
If you found this edition of 3-Read Friday useful, feel free to share it with colleagues. Also, you can check out all the back issues of my Eedi newsletter and Tips for Teachers newsletter here. But, most importantly of all, have a great weekend.
